You will perhaps recall that, following the devastating air campaign against Britain during early May 1940, FDR responded to a personal appeal by Churchill to send troops to bolster British defences. Unfortunately, events moved very quickly and only the first wave units were in place by the time of the German invasion on 8th June. Some of those American troops were barracked close to Birkham Stokes, which proved fortunate for the village, although, as circumstances turned out, not fortunate enough.Stupid me, how could I have forgotten that.
I believe that many of those forces fought a determined rear guard action to protect the remaining assets of His Majesty's armed forces in their withdrawal into the Scottish Highlands.
